The spec covers details such as fabric description, physical performance and colour fastness, as well as general requirements for the fabric.

ETSA has found that industrial laundrerers may be faced with workwear that is not suitable for industrial processing for a variety of reasons from poor colour-fastnesss or pilling resistance to unsuitability for industrial washing or drying.

The association is also investigating whether the spec could be extended to include garments as well as fabrics and, perhaps more controversially, is looking at the pros and cons of producing a “fit to be industrially washed” label. This last proposal would have significant legal, administrative and management implications and the association is looking into these.
